Most Enchanting Travel
3am, May 21, 2005, Olakira Camp, Serengeti, Tanzania. As the roar of the lions became louder and louder, the instinctive and irrational human fears began to emerge stronger and stronger. Would the lions enter our tent? Is Ghost in the Darkness a true story? Would they eat us? How close are they? I could almost feel the breath of one of the lions. Curiosity overcame fear and we timidly walked towards the zipper of our window of our canvas tent and watched a pride of lions walk right through our camp that night. This exhilarating experience on my first safari in Africa had me hooked and instilled an even stronger passion for travel. I could only look up and thank my lucky stars for being able to live a dream – to travel the world and enjoy such special moments.
There is no greater joy than travel, except that of sharing this joy and passion with other travelers!
